Al-Qamishli and ʿAmudah: Demonstrators demand the overthrow of Bashar al-Assad

KURDWATCH, June 23, 2011—During nighttime demonstrations on June 21, 2011, several hundred people took to the streets with candles in al-Qamishli and ʿAmudah. The demonstrators, who were primarily young people, demanded the overthrow of President Bashar al-Assad and his regime and showed solidarity with the victims in other Syrian cities. Alluding to Bashar al-Assad’s June 20, 2011 speech, the demonstrators in ʿAmudah held up a poster which read: »Your continuance [as president] is the greatest conspiracy; your disappearance is the reform.«
